Three years ago I started writing an article about all the great movies that have come from EU countries, most of them co-productions of two or more countries.  It was to be posted on Friday 24th June 2016, the day after the referendum, when the UK announced that it was staying in the EU.  Sadly, we didn’t vote to remain and that article never got finished.  I decided to finish it and post it on 31st October 2019, the new date set for us to leave.  Despite prime minster Boris Johnson’s insistence that he would “rather be dead in a ditch” than agree to extend Brexit, Brexit was extended.  As I read my words about European movies, they seemed somewhat inadequate, I have therefore deleted them and replaced them with this, a slideshow of movie images.  One image per EU member (some are co-productions attributed to more than one nation), all produced since the founding of the EU, most from this century.  I am setting this to auto-publish on the morning of the general election, the most important election in my lifetime.
